ECH Go Plogging UPDATE

07 September 2018
Written by: Craig Vaughnley


Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (Swedish: plocka upp). It started as an organised activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution. As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running

15 Intrepid East Cornwall Harriers Plogged around the country lanes of Liskeard collecting a variety of litter, most of the litter was unfortunately plastic and therefore recyclable, in total we collected 15 bags. The Plog started at 6.30 and we finished at 8.15pm, due to the high levels of litter around the country lanes it took us a lot longer than we expected. OLD road was very bad and this is surprising as it is less than 300 yards from the Biffa waste collection site at Moorswater.

The worst areas was along the A38, it appears drivers are simply opening their windows and throwing their rubbish out as they drive along, rather than simply taking it home and recycling or composting it.

The most unusual thing we found was one large Health and Safety sign a construction site sign.

The reaction from all of the Harriers after PLOG was really positive, everyone had a laugh and joke as we PLOGGED around, lots of litter related puns were created! (Thanks Dave H)
